3D Printed Self-Watering Planter

Every day we generate tons of waste, we throw away things that can be really useful in the right context. Starting from that point, Flowalistik has tried to combine the potential of 3D printing with one of the most common types of waste: food and beverage cans. The result of this idea is available for everyone, the Campbell Planter.

Living or working in a small place usually means the area is not plant-friendly. They require some water, attention and they can get your workspace dirty. Focused on this problems, this 3D printed adapter is a material saving way to give a new life to any type of can and make use of their functionality and neat design.

Here are some of the key aspects of this project:

Material optimization. One part adapter designed to be 3D printed. No support material is needed, smooth surface and material saving (25g of filament for the regular soda can adapter).
Low cost and Availability. Cans can be found everywhere and for a reasonable price (free if you look on the trash bin).
Environmentally friendly. Reuse instead of recycle. Planter suitable for offices and small apartments (it can be near wires or electronic devices with no danger).
Resizable. The design can be scaled to fit any can size. The source files are available to modify any aspect of the design.

I'm guessing there is a hole in the bottom of the print and you just put water into the can and pop the print back in.

Out of the box thinking is easier when you never fitted in the box to begin with. smiling smiley
